111 Tasting Notes
Here’s another lovely tea from Yumchaa. And what better way to start off a gloomy morning than with some glorious black tea. Love it. :D
I’m a bit disappointed with my trip to TeaGschwendner. I bought 2 fruit infusions and one black tea, and even though they all smelled wonderfully, none of them lived up to my expectations. This wild cherry (Wildkirche) black tea is actually the best of the bunch but still, it leaves a bitter, almost metallic aftertaste in the mouth, which is never a good thing. Maybe it’ll try using a bit less tea next time…
And another sample from cteresa (thank you for being my dealer! :P)
Very nice, the lemongrass really does come true and I actually like the taste, unlike that other lemongrass tea I bought which was really really bad. Another winner for Marriage Frères. :D
Here’s another sample from cteresa (thank you!)
I like it. It’s very “flowery”, more so than I thought when I read the name, but even though I’m more of a fruit fan, this one is very nice.
I’m a HUGE fan of chocolate. The richer the better, chocolate is my one addiction, something that I can’t really live without. Though there are some places where chocolate seems strange. Yogurt was the first one (stracciatella yogurt is really strange) and later tea. I had already tried a chocolate tea about 10 years ago that failed to impress me, but still I had to give this one a try. The verdict: well, if there’s chocolate in it, it’s very very mild, It just tastes like a regular black tea… no oomph to give it a push. That settles it: this is definitely not my cup of tea.
I got a bag of this tea from a friend to take on my trip, but I couldn’t resist and well… here it goes. Really really lovely. Thanks P!
